'm john king. we're live in the nation's capital on the national mall for president obama's second inauguration. plenty of excitement. a lot going on in the capital city. cnn going to bring you all the big events and all the highlights. president barack obama's second term is officially under way for seven hours now. he took the oath of office at noon today, january 20th, as required by the u.s. constitution. mr. obama sworn in. a small ceremony using a bible that belonged to his wife's family. chief justice john roberts used a note card this time avoiding, you might remember, the verbal stumble of four years ago. the president, of course, will do tomorrow in public in the traditional setting outside the capital using the same lincoln bible he used four years ago and a bible that belonged to the reverend martin luther king, jr. hundreds of thousands of people from across the country, some from around the world, will be here in the nation's capital to witness hit. earlier today at the vice president's official residence, joe biden was sworn into office for a second term. doing the h
. what do you think? was baker speaking out of turn or not? john avalon and hogan digly. there's a disagreement in the nra. i don't know if you view it as a smackdown, it appeared to be to me. what do you make of this public divide within the nra? >> it's very, very interesting. of course, the nra has been thrust into the news because of the tragedy at newtown. they have a chance to actually grow their brand or hurt their brand and i think it remains to be seen exactly what the long-term effects of this are. but i saw that ad using the president's children. i think the spirit and the intent, the message behind the ad, look, his children are protected by people with heavy artillery and guns, wouldn't you want your kids to be protected the same way? that makes sense. the problem is, personally, my opinion is, i don't like using children in political ads of any kind. i think consistently speaking, i also don't like the president when he uses children to sign a bill, obama care uses children as props, he used them when he did the executive orders about gun control. so those types o

"outfront" tonight, erick erickson and john avlon. so, the president in his inauguration speech took on those who don't believe in climate change. he made that choice to focus on it. >> some may still deny the overwhelming judgment of science, but none can avoid the devastating impact of raging fires, crippling drought and more powerful storms. >> it sort of surprised me to look at the polls and see that fewer and fewer people seem to believe this is a problem or a manmade problem. maybe it was the al gore effect. seemed like people would get warmed up. >> you know, it seems to me that the biggest problem that global warming aggregates have is every time the conversation comes up is there's a snowstorm and instead of the winter, more people would buy into it. the biggest problem, what does it matter? say the president does do something with global warming? china and india aren't going to. we could shut down production of everything tomorrow that causes greenhouse gases and china and india aren't and even if everyone did, the effects wouldn't take effect until about 100 ye

, you heard from senator john mccain saying that, quote, he would have like to have seen some outreach in the president's marks, senator john thune of south dakota calling it "mostly 30,000 foot stuff" he, referring to the president, "wasn't doing the kind of outreach he needs to do if he wants to get things accomplished in the second term" and senator susan collins republican of maine chiming in, she had hoped the president's speech would be a little less partisan than it was at times. we heard the pushback in social media particular attention to a comment ali line about the nati of takers and apparent swipe at former gop opponent mitt romney. while a lot of people are celebrating the president's remarks and where the president plans to take the country over the next four years, some concern as well especially from republicans, carol. >> dan, this was also the first time a sitting president addressed the topic of gay marriage in an inaugural address. listen to what the president said. >> our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under
a listen to what she said at the news conference, john. >> the bill protects hunters and sportsmen by protecting 2200 specifically named weapons used for hunting or sporting purposes. they are by make and model exempted from the legislation. when we did this bill in '93, there were 375. today, there are 2,200. >> reporter: so do the exemptions make any difference with the national rifle association? >> senator feinstein has been trying to ban guns for decades. it's disappointing but not surprising she is focused on occur tailing the constitution instead of fixing our broken mental health system. gun bans do not work and we're confident that congress will reject her wrong headed approach. action resuming next week in the senate on guns, john. >> is senator feinstein put on a big show. there was big drama. does this have any chance of getting passed? >> reporter: very difficult chance. it will be a tough road ahead. it's not because of republicans in this case. it's because of democrats. remember, in the senate there are a lot of democrats from red states. some of them up for re-elec
to this shortly -- john mccain and rand paul were tough on her. they were not backing down. >> that's right. republicans were focused on, one, the administration specifically the united nations ambassador susan rice initially in the sunday show appearances, on all five sunday shows that sunday but also an initial discussion about what happened in benghazi, the word was that this was not a terrorist attack, this was a spontaneous protest because of the anti-islam video which of course turns out not to have been the case and a lot senators were focused on why were these talking points false. johnson said dr. rice was purposefully misleading the american public. dr. rice said she was not, she was using the talking points used by the intelligence committee and no effort to mislead. she was providing as much information as she knew at the time. the other information by senator rand paul talking about the lack of accountability, how come nobody was fired. he said if he had been presented at time, and this is somebody who harbors ambitions, he would have relieved secretary clinton of her jobs, spe
want to bring in joe johns. he's also working his sources. what are you hearing, joe? >> well, we've got the fbi, the alcohol, tobacco, firearms bureau and others converging on the scene and we're told there are about five different local agencies surrounding the woods there looking for that one shooter who apparently has not been identified. as ed reported, this sounds very different, wolf, from the types of situations we've seen aurora, colorado, newtown, connecticut, and other places where one individual went in indiscriminately and started shooting. this appears to be an altercation between two people in a school setting which makes it sound like more like the things we've seen at public schools and major metropolitan areas and some other universities where police have to start asking questions, was it drug-related, was it gang-related, was this a score settling of any type? these are the types of questions. and congresswoman sheila jackson lee of texas who represents this area, harris county, texas, was asked that question and sort of restated it on air a while ago but we dou
, what is next for her. let's bring in chief political correspondent candy crowley and john king. in 2008, barack obama, hillary clinton were bitter enemies battling a tough primary season. now fast forward, they're doing this high-profile joint interview. what do you make of how their relationship has evolved? >> i think it evolves out of political necessity. it's a very powerful force in politics. and it is not the first time that rivals have ended up being friends sort of. >> are they friends? >> well, look, have they been to the white house for dinner? we're told not. >> see, i find it amazing. >> she owes him a lot and he owes them a lot. there was the bushes and the doles and the reagans, and they all didn't get along for a while. and then the political expediency, political necessity chimed in. do i think that they seem to have come up with a relationship that looks at least on the surface like a good one beyond just a good working relationship? it certainly looks like it. and let's remember, hillary clinton's been through a whole lot worse than getting defeated by president obama.
the second-term agenda? our chief national correspondent john king is here with answer a. can the president deliver? >> today, no, this is not only a chance to deliver but how he will conduct himself. you see people listen, inside washington they don't have the votes. let's listen to what dana talked about, there are at least 11 senate democratic seats, some say 11, some say 13, but these 11 seats now held by democrats, many of them are gun-right states and many have incumbents who say no, mr. president, or i won't go as far as you say. the president has a problem in his party, the republicans are just standing back, they're saying if you can prove you get the votes with the democrats we'll look at these things. but the expectation is that the senate will go first, house speaker john boehner and his staff will say we'll look at them in committee hearings but wouldn't act unless the senate passes something. they think the best the president can get today is something significantly watered down. maybe a water-down version of his background checks, maybe the assault weapons ban, today, it woul
